Her love, laughter, and infectious smile will be greatly missed.  She was preceded in death by her father, David McCrindle of Toledo, Ohio and father in-law, R. Wayne McCaskill, of Murrayville, Ga.

I had not met the McCaskill's until 6 months ago when it became my great honor to become a caregiver for Linda. As soon as you met her the first thing you noticed, and never forgot, was her amazing smile! It lit up the room, and when you mentioned Ray, it shone even brighter! Their love story is like a fairy tale. Getting to know Robbie and Jennifer let me know what a wonderful mom she was, watching Ray's eyes light up when he saw her showed what a wonderful wife she was, and listening to her friends speak of her let you know she was a dearly loved friend. I loved every minute of my time with her and will treasure it always, but I am so thankful she is at peace now and free of suffering. She will be forever loved and missed.

The loss of Mrs. Linda (McGrindle) McCaskill a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are people who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time of grief.
